Loving Large is based on a four week sermon series that seeks to move people to action in their Christian faith. In a world that seems to run on money, greed, oil, power, etc., what would our world look like if it ran on the love of God? How can we infuse this world-changing love into our community and world?
The series, developed by Jacob Armstrong, founding pastor of Providence UMC in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, gives real opportunities for people to serve God and love their neighbor. It could possibly culminate with a church-wide day of service to the community.
Week 1: The Distracted Life
Week 2: Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher
Week 3: Loving is Giving
Week 4: Can We Really Change the World?
The series includes a flash drive containing sermon outlines, a video trailer, professionally constructed PowerPoint graphics, promotional art, and a small group leader guide for discussion in Sunday school or house groups. The Loving Large devotional book brings the whole congregation together in reading and prayer daily. The weekly introductions and reading form content for small group study.
